Ok so I'm coming off of a break from Rift and I just learned my server has become a trial shard (yes... it was quite a break).

So I need a new one, and I'm probably going to lose my name Smiley: glare

Any suggestions?

Awww.

You could come here to Alsbeth, but it's kind of quiet after we were hazed from that flood of transfers when it started.

Wait ... It's a trial shard, so you're too good for it?

Newbies who can't talk in public chat channels or trade scare you?

Or am I missing something?

Trial shard players are "heavily encouraged" to transfer off as soon as possible.

Yeah basically I got this dialog box that popped up that said "Yar, trial shard.. go away"

And Meridian is a ghost town now

I had the same thing with my rogue. I went on a bit of a break and the shard I was on was flagged as a trial shard and was basically deserted. The trial shards are being reserved by Trion for use in future trial events (they haven't released details about what those might involve or when they might happen, but it makes sense in a lot of ways to do it like that.)

I finally got around to transferring my characters just this past weekend and the itch to play again is growing day by day, but I'm afraid I can't really recommend any good shards. I haven't checked out the warfronts on my rogue's new shard and there was nothing all that great happening on my warrior's shard the last time I played there.

I think trial shards were just Trion's way of doing server consolidation. Let's face it, they ended up with a metric tonne of servers after the initial land rush.

Most of us are taking a permanent break from Rift. Take a look at Tera or SWToR if mmo daily grinds are your choice. You can spend countless hours at SwToR website.

Most of us? You mean you and...you? You're not as important as your momma tried to make you think you are.

Next time you get banned from the official forums because you don't know how to behave, be a sport and don't come posting here. ZAM doesn't ban and let you slink away quietly. We're more about public humiliation.

Shadefallen has a big Defiant playerbase.
You could win versus guardians easy.
